Christian Preschool--est. 1990

Our philosophy is to provide an atmosphere in which a child can develop his/her potential through a nurturing and caring environment as we prepare them for Kindergarten. We offer a variety of sessions to suit you and your child’s needs. Please refer to our web site arndtslutheran.org

 

Vacation Bible School

Arndt’s Lutheran Church presents an ecumenical VBS that really reaches out to the community.  The Christian Education team created six unique themes encompassing creation through the life and times of Jesus.   The stories bring the Bible to life and the days are spent using a hands-on approach to learning.  Each year there is a school-within-a-school where the stories and concepts of the day are reinforced.
